Focus on Mexico – A Learning Adventure

 

Focus On Mexico

In October November 2018, I had the opportunity to experience the Focus on Mexico Learning Adventure in Ajijic Mexico. My wife and I had been in Ajijic in August 2018 when Focus on Mexico had their August gathering and had the opportunity to speak with FOM attendees who were participating in the August 2018 session. The unanimous opinion of those August 2018 FOM attendees was “This is a fantastic program! Do it. For sure.”

We returned to the U.S. and decided I should enroll in the October (25-November 2nd 2018) Focus on Mexico forum. I did just that.

Frankly, I had a blast at Focus on Mexico…met fantastic people…learned more than I could have imagined…and will remember the Focus on Mexico learning adventure for the rest of my life. Honestly, it was priceless for me. Here’s how I really feel about Focus on Mexico:

“Don’t hesitate! Register for Focus on Mexico NOW! This is NOT a seminar. It IS a learning experience – with others like you, exploring the possibilities of relocating to Lakeside. It is also the opportunity to meet new people, begin enduring friendships, meet those in the business of serving your everyday needs (transportation, moving, customs, immigration, legal matters, fitness, pet care, financial considerations, real estate, healthcare, transportation, investment, foreign currency exchange, financial planning, etc.). Don’t worry – you wont be locked in a dark room for a week! On the contrary, FOCUS staff intentionally immerses the group in a variety of  essential forays into the surrounding communities and culture. Expect to Learn. Ask Questions. Laugh. Explore. Wander. Have Fun! Register today – and complete this learning experience! It is an essential investment that will deliver practical and tangible benefits to you and yours for years to come! You will be very glad you did. We are.”

Every October these white Pelicans from Canada migrate to this small village in central Mexico. They stay until March. The village is Petatan – located on Lake Chapala – in the state of Jalisco.

Visit Lake Chapala, Ajijic and the surrounding communities – including those on the “other side” of the lake from Ajijic and Chapala.

The Sacred Architecture of Central Mexico

Catedral de Guadalajara

Whether you are a religious person or NOT – the architecture of the sacred places in Central Mexico is an inspiring and world class marvel.

On a recent trip, I captured images inside and out of cathedrals in Guadalajara (Catedral Metropolitano, Templo Expiatorio, (and many others), in Ajijic, Chapala, Jocotepec, Jiquipan, Tizpan, San Cristobal and Petatan.

For me, and I am not Catholic, these structures- many of which took 100 years and 3 generations to build – are humbling – and are a testament to the creative genius of the human spirit and the penchant to create unique and special places for the celebration of the God-Man relationship. Needless to say, they memorialize the centrality of religion in Mexican culture.
